AbstractThe sensory unit consists of free nerve endings that lie between the mucosal cells of the airway epithelium. Sensory units appear to be particularly abundant over the arytenoid cartilages and are also found on the laryngeal side of the epiglottis. Study was undertaken in patients planned for elective surgeries under General Anaesthesia. Patient were selected between 18 to 60yrs of Age with ASA 1 and ASA 2 grades. They were divided into 2 groups of 30 each and allocated randomly. All patients were explained about the procedure and its complication and informed consent obtained. There were no significant differences between the two groups with regard to demographic data such as age and weight. The average age in Group-C (clonidine) was 31.90 years and average age in Group D (dexmedetomidine) was 34.80 years.
